I am an individual investor who saved for retirement. I lost big in the '99 dot-com bust and ran away from the market for a while. I also rode down the cliff during the 2008 financial bust but in 2009 I decided to double down on my savings. Today, I tend to focus on dividend stocks but I still rely heavily on ETFs. I try to do my research and buy for the long term.
I am an engineer by training and education. I have written and published extensively as an engineer. I have even served as President of an international engineering society. I am a methodical researcher, which presents itself in how I live my life. I grew up in middle America. I've lived in the South Pacific. I used to live in the Pacific Northwest and traveled extensively for work. I retired early to Ecuador in South America with a view of the ocean.
